    Hi Guys,

    I have a problem with WordPress SEO by Yoast.

    My homepage meta description keeps changing in Google SERPS to an excerpt from the latest blog post. I want it to have a fixed meta description that doesn’t change. I have set up the Site Title and Meta Description and tags in the top section of Title Settings.

    I have the post metadescription set to %%excerpt%% which is fine for the post search engine result, but why is my homepage meta description also adopting this?

    For example, say my site is about pens, I want my homepage meta description in google serps to be:

    “The best blog about pens, with the latest news and great deals”.

    But it is actually an excerpt from the latest blog post:

    “…it’s a really nice pen to use, and glides effortlessly over the paper…”

    Hope this makes sense.

    Thanks in advance.

    There’s nothing i can do about that to force it. The only thing you can do is make sure the searched for keyword is in the homepage meta description.
